Charlie and the Choclate Factory was a fun romp. Lots of quote-able lines and Depp didn't creep me out near as much as Gene Wilder did. This version also stayed truer to the book (although I think the ending was still different, but I can't seem to remember how the book ended.... nor can I remember anything from The Great Glass Elevator, come to think).

There is one particular expression (or perhaps series of expressions) on Wonka's face that I could watch for a long time. It's when the know-it-all TV/Video games boy asks to pick the next room they go to. It's just....it's just perfect, such evil delight.

Meme posted mostly for the quote.

Because, for once, that is EXACTLY how I feel.

Jean-Luc Picard

An accomplished diplomat who can virtually do no wrong, you sometimes know it is best to rely on the council of others while holding the reins.

There are some words which I have known since I was a schoolboy. "With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censored, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably." These words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie -- as a wisdom, and warning. The first time any man's freedom is trodden on, we're all damaged.

Jean-Luc is a character in the Star Trek universe.
